The course will use South Africa’s post-apartheid social and educational reforms as a case study to explore access and equity issues in education. What are the policies in place, challenges in implementing policies, and successes? There will be a comparison made with the US education context while drawing lessons from other countries in Africa. The course covers policies in K-12, higher education, and informal education systems that provide support for success in education. You will learn from people who are grappling with reform issues on a daily basis, explore the country’s diverse cultures, and gain an understanding of the challenges faced by its leaders and policymakers. Researchers, government officials, and other experts will share their own experiences in lectures and discussions.
